Answer . Depends on type of MI, size and comorbidites. Generally speaking 1 year mortality following an MI is 4-7%.

A myocardial infarction is a heart attack. It is caused when the cells of the muscle of the heart do not get enough oxygen and glucose, resulting in anaerobic metabolism a…nd buildup of products of that metabolism, resulting in cellular acidosis, shutdown of cellular metabolism, and finally cell death and necrosis. In the overwhelming number of casea, this process results from the blockage of a coronary artery by a thrombus formed when a cholesterol plaque ruptures, causing a clot to form. It can be caused by several other things, however. Severe dehydration, severe hypotension, partial blockage of an artery by a large plaque that has not ruptured and other low flow states can result in not enough oxygen and glucose getting to the cells. Also, anything that increases the metabolic demands on the heart muscle can cause similar effects - sepsis with shock, toxins, drugs, and poisonings.

There are many different manifestations of a myocardial infarction and can very from person to person. Some common manifestations include but are not limited to chest pain, di…zziness, shortness of breath, weakness. For further research see the related link below.
A heart attack.
In lay terms, these are heart attacks. Myocardial refers to the heart, infarction refers to cell death resulting from inadequate blood and oxygen flow.
Ischemia or a deficiency of blood flow to the heart causes a heart attack.

The lay term for a myocardial infarction is "heart attack."
Ischaemia is the lack of blood supply to a tissue which start anaerobic respiratory mechanisms. Infarction is cell death through apoptosis resulting from prolonged or severe i…schaemia. Clinicaly myocardial infarction will be more painful and is unrelieved by rest. On ECG infarction will reult in ST segment elevation where ischaemia will result in ST segment depresion (unless it is a posterior MI!). In MI there will also be raised biochemical markers hours later such as creatine kinase and troponin.
In an MI, heart muscle dies. When they die, they release enzymes etc. leading to an inflammatory cascade developing, white blood cells being attracted to the area etc. They al…so release inflammatory proteins that stick to the RBCs, causing them to stick as they fall in the ESR tube and slowing their descent, hence prolonging the ESR time.
Myocardial Infarctions, or heart attacks, can be caused by obesity. A fatty diet or lack of regular exercise can lead to a higher chance of a myocardial infarction.

Myocardial infarction happens when no enough oxygen is coming to the myocytes(muscle cells of the heart) via the coronary artery(which supplies the heart itself with blood). I…ts caused mainly by occlusion in the artery by an atherosclerotic plaque(imagine it as an obstacle which prevents sufficient blood to reach the area which needs blood).. So when this obstacle is big enough to reduce progressivly oxygen supply to that area of the heart(because this plaque gets bigger by time and when no therapy and managment is done).. Muscle dies and infarction happens.( shortly because of the death of myocytes)
